Important
Once you have registered and paid for your course through the RMIT Short Courses website, there will be an additional enrolment step. This is because you will be studying a nationally endorsed unit(s) of competency. You will be contacted shortly by our Administration team regarding the next step for online enrolment into an accredited unit(s).
When the Administration team contacts you, they will ask for your DOB and Citizenship to set you up in our RMIT University recording system. You will then be sent instructions on how to complete the online enrolment for a unit of competency, which is relatively simple, but if you have issues the Administration team will be very happy to assist.
